[texts]Physics Experiment 4, Light - Patrick Bruskiewich
The purpose of this lab is to study some properties of light, to learn how logarithms can be used to find a power law relationship, and to use this technique to derive the Wien Displacement Law and Stefan-Boltzmann Law. The Temperature of the Surface of the Sun will be estimated using the Wien Displacement Law. Using the Wien Displacement Law it is possible to provide a simple derivation of the Planck Expression.

[texts]Pushing a String, the Border between Classical and Quantum Physics - Patrick Bruskiewich
A century ago a Dutch scientist, Paul Ehrenfest, hypothesized that at the border between the quantum and classical worlds the two sets of laws should match. Evidently, in the simple example of a string pushed across a table top they do not! Why they are different reflects a little of the angst of the quantum world. Heads or tails is passe. If you are a betting sort of a person, instead of flipping a coin, string pushing should be your fancy...
